Dell T320: ERROR: Key is too long

Hello,

I'd like to add my 8192 ssh key to iDRAC, but it seems to be too long:

sudo /opt/dell/srvadmin/bin/idracadm7 -r <IP> -u root -p <PASSWORD> sshpkauth -i 2 -k 1 -f ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub 
[sudo] password for user: 
Security Alert: Certificate is invalid - self signed certificate
Continuing execution. Use -S option for racadm to stop execution on certificate-related errors.
ERROR: Key is too long.    

After looking for this error, I found this article that says it's supposed to be solved with firmware 2.40.40.40. I'm on 2.63.60.62 but the issue remains.

As I don't plan to regenerate an other SSH key specifically for the iDRAC, is there another workaround ? Does Dell plan to fix this issue ?

Thank you.
